Christy is originally from Columbus/Westerville, OH. For 20 years she lived in Southern Maine, where her professional career in drawing started, but has been drawing since she was introduced to a pencil at a very young age. She moved back to Ohio the summer of 2018, residing in Columbus. Christy is self-taught and her specialty mediums are ink, colored pencil, graphite pencil and very recently, acrylic paint.
Christy is known as an ‘Angel Artist’. She has always been fascinated by the supernatural spirituality of angels. She especially likes angels carved in stone as headstones in cemeteries. She gets her inspiration from these beautiful sculptures of art and how they weather throughout the years with the deterioration of the stone and the moss that grows on these headstones. These stones are pieces of art that continuously change year after year. Christy loves to capture the beauty of these headstones on paper from new to the aging of old. She mainly draws on white paper, but enjoys working on black paper to show depth and variety with white colored pencil and white ink. She will sometimes add metallic ink to her white colored pencil drawings on black paper to give her drawings a unique look.
Currently she has been working on a new passion she didn't think she'd like, acrylic paints. She has applied much of her drawing technique to her painting and adding a new style and is enjoying working with acrylics. She has also decided to sell prints of her work instead of just her original artwork. She does take commissions, so if you are interested in a commission piece, please contact her for details.
